Somebody asked my why Abraham would mix meat and cheese (mixing meat and a dairy product) if that's prohibited. I knew that it was made a dietary restriction at the time of the Exodus, but I thought how do I miss a detail like that? I totally glossed over the fact of what they had to eat.

I'm going to rewrite Huey Lewis' song "I want a new drug" and make it:

"I want a new brain.
One that won't make me feel so dumb.
One that won't make me look so lame.
I want a new brain.
One that won't make me quite so dense.
One that'll give me a lot more sense."

Not sure I follow. If it wasn't prohibited until the Exodus, why would that matter for Abraham? If it's just part of the ceremonial law, it only applies because God says it does, and not until. Am I not getting the problem?

It's also a rabbinical law - the Israelites were only forbidden to boil a kid in its mother's milk (Exodus 23:19), not never to mix meat and dairy.

The fact that I could sit there and listen to the entire passage, and never make a single notation of the fact that they ate meat and cheese. So when somebody asked me about it, I thought, 'uhhh...they did? (pretending to have paid attention), I said, 'oh...yeah...it did'.

Sometimes I think, I'm so oblivious, I'm going to miss my own death, and not notice.

Thanks, but I actually skewed on the Meyers-Briggs test, so far away from being detailed oriented, it nearly fell off the page.

Well, it sure never occurred to me, either. :D
